Ride Bikes Radio

Most of you have been playing the Don Burnside home game. Because of this, you also know that I re-discovered riding bikes. They are all over my social media and over here on my side of the screen, I’ll talk about bicycles to anyone that will listen.

So I have decided to put this excitement to good use.

I have been wanting to add additional shows under the White Roof for a while. Not looking to build up a full blown network, yet. Just another show or two. A bunch of people have been telling me that a bicycle podcast is what we needed, so a bicycle podcast is what I have created!

Ride Bikes Radio is the name, bicycling is our game. With my pal Brian Dallas, who has spent his entire life in and around bicycles, we talk every week about topics that would interest the normal, everyday cyclist. We aren’t talking about million dollar carbon bikes or the latest racing results, no sir! We are discussing safety, maintenance tips, community news & events. Oh, and beer. Do not forget the beer.

Our fourth episode just went out and I’m really please with the direction the show is taking. If you like riding bicycles for any reason, you should check us out. The latest episode is below and you can also find us where finer podcasts are served.

You’re Going to Podcamp. Now What?

Just like last year, I will again be presenting at PodCampAZ. Just like last year, I will be doing a talk about Podcasting. But this year will be different.

This year, instead of just talking about Podcasting, I’m going to get anyone that wants, to actually make a podcast. That’s right. A short audio podcast (or video), uploaded to a server, posted to a WordPress site and made available in iTunes!

There is a chance that I will also be leading a session that will continue, more in-depth and hands on, where the talk leaves off. I’m pretty excited and can’t wait to start putting it all together. Watch this space for more details.

And if you are going to be in or around Phoenix November 11-12, drop by the University of Advanced Technology to check it out. Last year’s event was pretty amazing and I will almost bet that this year’s will be even better! Click the logo for full details.

Something new

Some of you might have been fans of The Hollywood Car show, long since on hiatus. Well, after months of planning, Tim and I are back to our old shenanigans in a new home; The Hollywood Garage! Episode 2 is below and we think it’s pretty cool. Check it out!


We’re back again! Talking about cool stuff from Hollywood as we like to do like X-Men First Class as seen above, Logan’s Run, Die Hard 5 and a bunch of other movies that we picked from Tim’s blog!

Also, our first interview this week with the world famous Uncle Joe Benson! He has been in and around the music industry for years and you probably know him best from KLOS. Or, maybe from auto racing!. Yes, he has a team of cars, among other things, that you can see over at unclejoebenson.com.

Stick around! Next week we will have a new feature that we are sure you will love and the following week we’ll have Dave Kunz from ABCTV in LA on to talk about the cars he likes!

Finally, you can follow us on Twitter and Facebook (click like on the right). We are also pleased to announce that you can finally get The Hollywood Garage Podcast in iTunes!

PodcampAZ: Podcast Consistency – Keep your listeners

On Saturday, November 20th, I lead a session at PodcampAZ about Podcast consistency, keeping your listeners and getting new ones. I think there are some great tips here, hopefully you will find it useful.

Some of the items discussed in the show.

  • Audio Hijack Pro for Mac can be found here
  • Pamela Skype Recorder for Windows can be found here
  • My podcast can be found at WhiteRoofRadio.com

If you were one that attended my session, thank you for your time! If you have any follow up questions at any time, please do not hesitate to contact me.

This is audio taken from my Flip Video video camera. No video because the zoom was set to full and that’s a view of me that nobody needs, really.

White Roof Radio #301

5850_116844105212_523665212_2801718_607187_n

Starting our 4th year with Woofcast 301, joined by a couple of guys that you might know. Agro, grand poobah of AMVIV and Chad Miller from Detroit Tuned help us out with news from Motoringfile, Bimmerfile and other places. A quick note to the affliates, we do go long in this episode.

After news, Chad lays down some tips to help keep your MINI running well and performing some of your own DIY installs like brakes. This brought up the idea for a possible new segment on the show called Ask Chad, where he answers your questions. What say you? Leave a comment below.

Finishing off with some event talk, including an update to AMVIV 7. If you want to get on the mailing list, you can do that here. Get on the list and be the first to know about what’s going on with AMVIV.

If you are going to MINIs in the Mountains, be sure to stop by and say hi to Todd. He will have the new badges plus a few new designs that you are sure to like. Watch for those to show up on Motoringbadges.com very soon.

And, for those that might have missed it, there is a new MINI Community on the internet. It’s called Motoring Alliance and it’s where all the cool kids are hanging out these days. Check it out.
